I have a new demo now available on my blog. In this demo, you'll get a look at the new resource collection, new battle casualty scene, new music on transition screens that didn't have music before, and the new building found in the game. My blog has been getting updated about every week or so. As always, please send me your email if you'd like notification when the cartridge is released. Thanks!

So I got around to playing this game in the past few days and it's a fun and quite long game. I'm currently at level 10 of 20, and I find myself eating food each time I get into a battle. I've got the first bar of some of the music stuck in my head due to a screen switching trick. Gameplay wise, this is a better RTS then Overlord/Supremacy for the NES (but Overlord still has one of the best title screen music).

I do find the frequent random nameable and palette corruption to be slightly annoying but usually correctable.

Once I get to the last level, I'm thinking I might do a NES homebrew marathon on Twitch TV for a week or something. Including a play through of the last level of Armed for Battle.

So a question: I read in the manual that you can build storage buildings but I have yet to see such a thing. Is that later in the game, or a feature that got cut?

Thanks for posting! The homebrew marathon sounds like an awesome idea. As far as the Storage Buildings, yes, they were cut, and then replaced with the Scholar Temple. The gameplay/fun did not seem to benefit at all by the use of the Storage Building, and so I came up with the Scholar Temple which did have benefits in the strategizing aspect. I discovered just a little too late that a mention of the storage buildings was still in the manual (it was removed in the key places of the manual). I had a blog entry back on 02-27-14 that bid farewell to the storage buildings. :)

This is a really cool project. I like what I've seen and what I've played of the demo :)! I don't know if you've already discovered this bug but during the battle scene when I got down to about 4 guys on the battle field with my army depleted they were frozen in the first column of the battlefield and wouldn't attack any enemies and the enemies wouldn't attack them. Nonetheless keep up the good work!

Great to hear - thanks! This bug was fixed for the final version of the game. It's been a while, but I am thinking this was a rare occurrence on the demo (or at least I haven't gotten much feedback about this).
